Microsoft is preparing to make Copilot your new AI assistant for your Android phone. The latest update to the AI chatbot app lets you replace Google Assistant With Copilot on Android phones. Currently, you can only launch Copilot by pressing the navigation bar or home button, just like how you launch the Google Assistant or Gemini. It cannot do any Google Assistant functions on your device.
